Algiers’ biggest annual holiday celebration and New Orleans’ only official holiday bonfire, the Algiers Bonfire is the neighborhood’s largest public event and pays tribute to Louisiana’s river parish bonfire tradition. Listen to musical performances, eat food from local vendors, and shop at the holiday craft market. The star of the event however, is the 30’ sculptural bonfire, designed by NOLA Burners, which is then set ablaze. Easily accessible with the Algiers ferry, and with the New Orleans’ skyline as the perfect backdrop, this event cannot be missed!
Featuring music from Casmè, All Saints Church Choir, the LB Landry Jazz Ensemble and More!

The event grounds are located on the Algiers Point Batture at 201 Morgan Street, which is the land between the levee and the Mississippi River.
We recommend arriving via ferry, bus, bike, or on foot if possible, as parking is limited. The event is easily accessible via ferry, as it is directly adjacent to the Algiers Ferry Terminal. Folks coming from Lower Algiers and Gretna can reach the grounds using the Algiers Levee Bike Path. Folks looking to take the bus can plan their travel using the NORTA Trip Planner feature.
There are two small paid-parking lots in Algiers Point, one at 201 Morgan Street, the other at 157 Delaronde Street. AEDF does NOT operate these parking lots. Additionally, there is limited street parking.
